Did you know some Redi-Shades can be customized? This is cool...

1. Gather up some of your favorite decorating type supplies... 

ideas - fabric, wrapping paper, photos, paint, scrap book supplies, stencils

2. Place where you'd like everything to go...

 3. And enjoy your new customized shades!

Isn't this cute?!? The options are endless when you purchase the right shades to be able to do this.
